When to plant what & how in Florida, South Carolina.
February brings North FL the 1st chance to plant a taste of summer. For SFL it's the last month to plant near most the remaining winter plants. Statewide, lazy gardeners may want to hold off on planting summer veggies suitable to their zones til more the end of the month. Some cold weather is expected, that would kill little corn unless it was well mulched in something like leaves raked from the lawn or in something that could be brought in. * means last month to plant.
North FL Plant cucumbers, eggplant, peppers, tomatoes- beets, Broccoli*, cabbage, Carrots, cauliflower*, celery, kale*, Kohlrabi, leek, lettuce, Mustard, bunching onions, parsley, snow peas, potatoes, radish & turnips.
